As it has been doing for years, the Technical Commission on Good Governance Practices (CTPBG), chaired by the auditor general Jesús Rodríguez on behalf of the Office of the Auditor General of the Nation of Argentina, held the competition in which it calls on SAI officials to reflect on their work and their contribution to good governance.

The topic, the SAI and the use of technologies to detect financial fraud –emerging from the consultation that the commission made to the different bodies and working groups of the OLACEFS with the aim of working useful input topics for the Entities– managed to convene 14 works of those interested in giving their perspectives relating financial fraud detection to topics as diverse as SDGs and Big data.

While first prize went to Jonathan Nabor López Espinoza, official of the Office of the Comptroller General of Chile; second prize went to the team of Luis Alberto Giraldo Polanía, Mónica Sánchez Giraldo, Manuel Dulce Vanegas, David Hernández Chinchilla, Miguel Ángel Sastoque Caro, and Jairo Alberto Riascos Muñoz, of the Office of the Comptroller General of Colombia; and third prize was taken by the Office of the Comptroller General of Costa Rica, represented by Karen Garro Vargas, Milagro Barboza Rojas, Jeizel Barrantes Fernández, Estefany Campos Granados, Marilyn Chacón Chavarría, Tatiana Méndez Flores, and Alex Ramírez Alpizar
